Originating from Sun Valley, Idaho, Smith was founded in 1965 with the invention of the first snow goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. Dr. Bob Smith, orthodontist, and original ski bum developed the first sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam goggles so he could get a few more powder runs on days when everyone else had to go indoors. For over 50 years, SMITH has pioneered advanced products to fuel fun beyond walls, creating innovations that amplify awesomely and crafting gear where every detail makes a difference.

With 50 years of innovation and design experience, Smith is well known today as an industry leader that pioneers advanced eyewear and helmets that incorporate dynamic technologies, optimized performance and clean styling to fuel fun beyond walls. Smith seeks to power thrilling experiences in snow, surf, bike, fish and peak performance outdoor adventures with a comprehensive collection that exudes modern style and vibrant personality. To Smith, the experience is everything.

Featured here are our editors picks for the 2017/2018 SMITH winter collection

Women’s Allure Helmet

The Allure delivers enlightened style and a plush, fleeced tricot lining in the world’s lightest certified snow helmet.

I/O 7 Goggles

The I/O 7 is designed for optimized performance and perfected fit: single-pivot quick release for easy lens change, AirEvac™ ventilation for fog-free integration with Smith helmets, dual-axis outriggers that pivot in multiple directions to ensure superior helmet integration, and a frame designed for contoured face fit. All this technology is designed around one of Smith’s largest spherical lenses, providing a maximized field of view and 5X™ anti-fog technology. The I/O 7 was designed through a process of reducing elements to only the most essential, so there’s nothing getting in the way of a great day on the mountain.

Men’s Code Helmet

The new Code combines a minimalistic aesthetic with Aerocore™ construction featuring Koroyd® for the new front edge of skate-style protection. The low profile shell design is better protection combined with Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. The new Wayfinder strap system featuring Fidlock® is functional simplicity, making it easy to use one hand for on and off use. The technical-knit liner provides beanie-like comfort while a Boa® FS360 fit system lets you customize your fit. This is the first true solution for advanced riders that want superior protection and functionality with a minimal look.

Lowdown Focus Sunglasses

Life and sport are filled with chaos and distraction. Now there is a way to mentally train for better focus and concentration. Lowdown Focus and the Smith Focus app are designed to help you develop a heightened sense of self-awareness through cognitive training. The integrated brain sensing EEG technology in our Lowdown Focus eyewear provides visual feedback on your brain’s activity level so you can learn how to control your focus.

Women’s Sidney Sunglasses

A distinctly unique interpretation of a timeless women’s shape, the Sidney combines a round lens profile with a vintage cat eye shape and keyway nose detail. The crisp edges and beautiful, thick faceting disguise the subtle performance detailing just beneath. Constructed using megol nose pads and our feather-light Evolve eco-material, the Sidney provides glamorous elegance in a piece designed to fit comfortably all day long.
